Best Of Lists

If you’ve found this site, you are into exploring.  You go to record stores not knowing what you’re going to buy, but to see what is interesting, what you might discover that you haven’t heard before.

If you’ve come this far, care to go a little farther?

In addition to the various books (quite good) listed on my Record Reviews post, another way is to explore ‘best of’ lists – and particularly best of lists by a genre you want to explore.

In my never ending quest for new music, here are some best of lists I have found in my travels – happy hunting.
